I’ve never been a big movie buff but I spent a year working in a video rental store and have seen my fair share of them. There are a million posts I could write about this subject alone, but it never ceased to amaze me how popular some “comedies” were. Below are 5 comedies I never found funny. I know I’m alone in some of these (just like I was when I shared 8 Popular Books I Didn’t Like or Finish) but I’m sharing, anyway.
Super Troopers – I will never understand how this movie got to be so popular. All it makes me do is roll my eyes and get a little bit angry that I’m spending my time watching it.
Most Jim Carrey movies – To be fair, he got a little better once he starred in The Truman Show but a lot of his previous movies (Ace Ventura, The Mask, and Dumb & Dumber come to mind) were just painful.
Anger Management – I wish I liked this movie because I liked the early Sandler movies and think Jack Nicholson is amazing but this one fell short.
Austin Powers – I remember laughing at a few parts of this movie when it first came out but after rewatching it, I have no idea why that is. I never found the sequels to be all that great and I’ll be okay with never seeing any of them again.
Office Space -I know I’m almost alone in this but I do not find this movie funny and if I could live without ever hearing the name of it or a reference from it, I would be a pretty happy lady.
